Please be precise - you are trying to compile a PL/1 DB2 program through option 4.4, yes? This is the PL/1 compiler only. How did you preprocess your code to convert all your EXEC SQL stuff into PL/1 statements? You DID do that, didn't you? And a compile will not give you a timestamp error. Executing the program after it has been compile, linked, bound etc MAY give you a timestamp error. A timestamp error is also not a PL/1 error - it is a DB2 error. Suggest you get a co-worker to give you a quick run-through of all the steps needed and the tools/procedures to be used in your shop.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

You need to use the standard compile process that everyone else uses for pl/i - db2 compiles.
Hope this helps,
